Vancouver condo trends
Based on the economic forecasts and curent trends it's a competitive and fast moving market today that is tilted in favour of home sellers. It's important to connect with a local REALTOR who can help you develop a strategy to meet your home buying or selling needs.
The media talk of a housing bubble may be real but not for us, we've already had our correction over the past few years while other markets, particularly high end Vancouver and many areas outside of B.C have continued to experience rising prices. With interest rates still low, now is an excellent time to buy for the long term investor.
-1. This may be a good time to buy your new Vancouver condo if you are looking to buy only or looking to move up substantially.
-2. If you are moving sideways in price, the state of the market is immaterial. Now is as good a time as any. Vancouver is always a top choice for out of country investors and is always in the top 3 of places to live in the world!
-3. If you intend to sell only or to scale down substantially, now is the best time depending on your economic expectations for the immediate future.
